Ah, the lovely Leonard! Excellent choice!

I didn't make any resolutions either, although I have decided that I must do something about my fitness levels this year. When I finally get rid of this dratted flu bug, that is! It's a very unwelcome guest .. it arrived after a couple of days with a dry cough on Christmas morning and it's still with me. Gah.

I have to say I'm glad you're going to be an Olympics free zone (me too!) but I'm a little disappointed not to see you knitting a pixie hood!

I appreciate your good intentions, but where will I turn when I need a pixie hood?

Hideous thing, the pixie hood, which I was forced to wear as a child.

Am so relieved you will be an Olympics-free zone....it will be a very welcome change amidst all the hype. I read that the London theatres will have to close during the period as the city could not cope with the additional traffic - escandalosa

Love everything about that post, the vintage pattern (I'd frame it), Leonard and your determined resolve not to resolve. You are my kind of woman.

I was looking for more information about Cobbles Bookshop in Dunster, so I followed a link in Google and found myself on your most delightful blog! What a breath of fresh air you are in this upside-down world! Can't tell you how thrilled I am there'll be one blog in the UK that'll be Olympics free! THANK YOU!

Hi Joanna and welcome. Sadly, Cobbles Bookshop in Dunster has now closed its doors . . . I will try to find out if it has moved elsewhere.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
